How to Draw A Pear – Let’s get Started!
Let’s begin this pear drawing with the side of the body for the pear. We will also be drawing the stalk on top in this first step. First, use a curvy line for the left-hand side of the pear.
The pear will be thin on top and be thicker at the base, and this will begin to be evident in this first step.
Then, we will be drawing the stalk. This is thin and curved and will poke up from the top tip of the pear.
There will also be a small curved line at the base of the stalk where it is extending from the top of the pear.
We can then move on to the second step of the guide!
Step 2 – Draw the rest of the outline and the leaf
In this second step of our guide on how to draw a pear, we will finish off the outline along with the rest of the leaf.
First, use another curving line for the outline of the ‘body’ of the pear. As mentioned in the first step, the top half of the pear should be a bit thinner than the base.
Once the body of the pear is complete, we can draw the leaf. It is attached to a short stem, and the outline is drawn with a bumpy line to give it a rough outer texture.
Once this outline for the leaf is complete, we can move on to add some details in the next few steps.
Step 3 – Now, draw some veins for the leaf
The third part of this pear drawing will see you adding some details to the leaf.
All you need to do for this part is add some fairly short lines extending out from the spine of the leaf towards the inner perimeter of the leaf outline.
These will form the veins of the leaf, and as you can see in our reference image there will be a decent amount of them on this leaf.
With those drawn, we can proceed to step 4 of the guide!
Step 4 – Draw some details for the pear itself
We have finished the leaf, and in this step we will focus on adding some details to the pear itself that will add some dimension.
These details will be fairly small and simple, but they will help a lot with making this pear more realistic!
Simply add some curved lines near the top and lower curves of the pear. There will be three lines for the upper section and two for the lower, but you could go for more or fewer if you prefer!
Once these dimension lines have been drawn, we can then proceed to the final details of this drawing.
Step 5 – Now, you can add in the final details of the pear
Before you get to the final step of this guide on how to draw a pear, we will first add the final little details to the pear to make it look even better.
First, we will be drawing even more curved lines onto the right-hand side of the pear to give it even more dimension detail.
There will be one line for the upper section with quite a few small curved lines near the base.
Lastly, pears will often have a fair amount of spots on them. We will also add these in this step, and they can simply be drawn by dotting your pen all over the body of the pear.
When these have been added, you can then add some details of your own! Perhaps you could draw a background that has other fruit or maybe other foods you would like to enjoy with it.

Step 6 – Finish off your pear drawing with some color
It’s time to finish off this pear drawing with some color, and this should be a really fun part of the process! In our reference image, we used shades of greens and yellows for the body of the pear.
By changing up the shades of these colors, you can create a textured look for the pear while also adding some shading.
These are just some of the colors you could go for, however, and there are many other options you could go for!
Will you go for a realistic color scheme for this pear or maybe go for some more stylistic colors?

For example, you could make it a different shade of green or yellow. If you want to show a pear that is starting to rot, then you could have some brown mixed in.
Finally, when your pear sketch is looking perfect, you can finish off with a background. This could be simple, such as using a solid color to fill the background.
